Dr. Vijaya Nair clearly understands what it takes to put together an effective set of nutritional and botanical tools for helping people overcome cancer and other serious diseases.  In my work as a nutritional oncology specialist, I have been consistently impressed with the JIVA fermented soy and curcumin in terms of their ability to enhance the quality of life for people undergoing cancer treatment and those in recovery.  I have known a number of individuals with advanced cancers who have gone on to surprise their oncologists by substantially exceeding all statistically based expectations for survival.  The JIVA products have been a common denominator in many of these cases of "exceptional survivorship", and I am grateful to Dr. Nair for her many years of dedicated research and innovation in the realm of natural medicine.

Dr Nair makes a compelling case for inflammation as the root cause for cancer and other diseases of aging and brings solid scientific support for its prevention with anti-inflammatory therapies. An excellent resource for both the public and the medical profession.”

"Our health and that of our loved ones is important.
Treat Dr. Nair's book as an educational tool which will enable us to
better understand, assess, and choose the best course of treatment
when a health problem arises, and how to prevent health problems such
as cancer from developing in the first place. It could save our life."

 Howard Peiper, N.D., nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, has written
 several best-selling books on nutrition and natural health.

This is an excellent book which is clearly written and easy to read for both lay persons and those working in the field of Health Care. The information presented in Dr. Nair’s book provides a comprehensive description of the role of nutrition and the importance of phytochemicals in combination with daily regimes including meditation and exercise, as powerful weapons in helping win the battle against disease.
I would heartily recommend this book to all those interested in trying to improve/maintain their health or the health of others.

I have taken everything including antibiotics for my chronic lyme disease, from which I have suffered lasting side effects. I started taking fermented soy and curcumin supplements just three months ago and I am finally starting to feel like my healthy self. I have more energy and need less sleep as well as feel more alive during the day. I have turned many of my friends on to fermented soy and curcumin supplements and they have gotten great results too!" - Claudia F. NYC, New York
"Fermented soy and curcumin are highly recommended by my oncology nutrition specialist and that the drink is delicious.  I am undergoing chemotherapy now and have had no side effects (other than hair loss).  I attribute my good experience with chemo to the nutritional regimen that helped strengthen and maintain my immune system before and during the treatments.  Fermented soya and curcumin supplements are, of course, part of that regimen." -- Jeanne, B. Vermont

“For the last few weeks I have been dragging around—everything I was doing seemed like a colossal effort—then, on top of feeling draggy, I caught a cold, and went from bad to worse… I did all the normal things to get better faster—sleep, rest, take garlic caps, consume lots of soup, etc. these things helped some, but I still felt very tired.  I then  took some Ashwagandha and Shilajit supplements that was recommended to me to see if I might feel better.  I took two capsules because I was so low on energy at work one day. The funny thing is, that afternoon I not only felt much better, I had this amazing new-found energy-- something I haven’t experienced in a very long time.   I had been going to bed early almost every night because I was so tired, but that night I was able to stay up late, and still wake up early the next day, completely refreshed, plus I had this wonderful sense of well-being.  The next day I took just one capsule, and all day long I felt alert, very positive, and was able to do all  my work with confidence, and without feeling the least bit stressed!  Please note that the energy I experienced from taking the Ashwagandha with Shilajit supplements is not at all like the nervous energy one usually gets from drinking coffee or from other stimulants, on the contrary I felt very grounded.  I have already recommended these supplements to all my co-workers and friends.  It’s amazing!” -- Wendy K., California

I have found both the fermented soy and curcumin to be very helpful in my path to health from breast cancer.  Edie F., VT

Arthritis -“Last week I started taking a few capsules of the curcumin and fermented soy each day to see if it would help my arthritis that was becoming more of a problem. Now I’m almost pain free and I’m not so bowed over. More to come” R. S. Waynesville, NC

Lyme disease -"I have taken everything including antibiotics for my chronic lyme disease, from which I have suffered lasting side effects. I started taking Jiva just three months ago and I am finaly starting to feel like my healthy self. I have more energy and need less sleep as well as feel more alive during the day. I have turned many of my friends on to Jiva and they have gotten great results too!" - Claudia F. NYC, New York

Eczema - “After reading on your web site that curcumin has been used for centuries for skin problems, I decided to give it to my 13 year old son for eczema. We’ve been trying for 13 years to clear this up with over the counter meds. In under 2 weeks the eczema was 95% gone.” Dec 07 J. O. Vermont

Menopause - "I have been dealing with menopause for already a number of years, and I finally feel alive again after taking JIVA. Not only has my rash become less severe 3 days after taking JIVA, I am able to live a caffeine -free life with a lot of energy. I feel relaxed!" - Pauline S. 

"I was recommended to use JIVA because of my menopausal symptoms, and I've lost one pound without changing my diet after one week of using the product, which is a surprise to me!"- C. L.

Restless Leg Syndrome - I have restless leg and periodic limb movement disorder. I think I have been tired all my life, and to top it off, I live and work in Manhattan, which is one of the fastest cities in the world. I have been taking Jiva for only three weeks, and I see a profound difference in my wakefulness and energy. Since I have tried so many things over the years that have not made much difference, I am absolutely floored to see any one thing make such a huge change, and so quickly. I can't wait to see how I feel in six months! Kate M. New York City, NY
